The characters Jurgis, Ona, and Marija with fellow family members are Lithuanian immigrants who came to PackingTown in hope for a better future, however they came to realize that the whole town is run by capitalist. Although Sinclair intentionally uses metaphors and similes to depict the characters struggle in the horrible living and working conditions in Packingtown, his purpose is undermined and overlooked by his use of realism to depict the food process.

“What happens when you are not taken care of properly, at work?” This is a question, Catherine Donohue and her friends/co-workers had to face, in Melanie Marnich’s These Shining Lives. I was amazed by the fact that the play is based on a true story about The Radium Dial Girls and their contributions to history. For director Sally J. Robertson to present it to the public is a constant reminder on how important the role of women has changed in society. After watching the play, it was incredible being both entertained and educated at the same time.

Ms. Vasquez was the newest member of the first grade team at Westside Elementary School. She, along with three other teachers, made up the first grade teaching staff. Three years before Sally’s employment began, the first grade staff “adopted academic progress and social development criteria for determining whether students should be retained in grade” (Kowalski, pg. 59).

“I aimed at the public’s heart and by accident I hit in the stomach” stated the international famous Upton Sinclair, after writing his most prominent novel, The Jungle. The word jungle is constantly associated with a wild environment full of undomesticated animals, but in this authentic novel, it refers to the unethical actions practiced during the gilded age.
